Hot Start to Perth’s 2011

Travel Tips — By Amanda Kendle on January 4, 2011 at 8:19 am

Happy New Year to all the Perth Local Flavor readers – from a hot and sticky Perth! After a fairly sweltering Christmas, the first few days of 2011 have all been close to or over the century mark, so most Perth people have been sticking near a swimming pool, taking a dip at the beach, hitting the air-conditioned shopping centres or simply staying home.

If you’re lucky enough to be on holiday here in Perth at the moment, then you’re probably noticing that our summer is really hot – but thankfully the next week is meant to be a bit of a “cool” relief. That means temperatures will be closer to 30 C than 40 C, and I for one am grateful for that.

In any case, it’s just another reminder that Perth is one of the sunniest cities in the world and as I’ve mentioned before, you’ll need your sunscreen and hat at pretty much any time of year here. Which in my opinion makes it a pretty great holiday destination – hope you’re planning a trip for 2011!
